1956 SCHWINN CORVETTE MENS VINTAGE CRUISER BICYCLE GREEN TYPHOON AMERICAN TIGER! Here is an original 1950s VINTAGE The serial number is N46912. Either Oct 1954 or Oct 1956 men's SCHWINN CORVETTE (model F-17) beach cruiser bicycle with 26 wheels.This bike was recently removed from VERY long term storage. It was literally buried in stuff inside a garage and has not seen the light of day in a very long time! If you like UNIQUE unrestored original bikes, this may be a great bike for you.
With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike! This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame and forks, large Schwinn head badge, original Schwinn hockey stick chainguard, (would look nice with a fresh decal) Schwinn cruiser style seat, (shows age) wide cruiser handlebars, Schwinn script hand grips, full Stainless Steel fenders, Schwinn bow pedals, (misshapen, I believe one is missing a cap) aluminum front carrier rack, (not great) and more! I believe this bike to be basically all original parts from when it was new. (see pics and be your own judge).
The Schwinn Corvette is one of the most legendary Schwinn bikes of all time! Names after the iconic Chevrolet Corvette of the 1950s!Every kid wanted one, few were lucky enough to get one! Have fun with this or display it next to your Corvette Stingray! BONUS, this is the FIRST YEAR of production of this legendary bicycle! I have not seen one of these in a really long time! The tires are 26x1 3/4.
They are vintage Schwinn wide whitewall tires and do hold air. The front is a Schwinn Superior. The rear is a Schwinn Westwind.
The bike has factory chrome Schwinn S-7 rims front and rear. The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 30 1/4. The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 28.
The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 1/2. The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22. The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.NOTED FLAWS I got this one just like you see it. Was recently rescued from long term storage. It would need a total resto for show or have fun with it in its current unrestored type patina. I hope you can appreciate the hard to find original green color on this one! (you rarely see it on these) The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. (would need resto for show) Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. (most every used bike out there seems to).
The rear wheel is missing 2 spokes. I love the middleweight series of Schwinn bikes of this era! (Jaguar, American, Panther, Skipper, Hollywood, Tiger, Speedster, etc). This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted.
A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by.
People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike! A great classic bike at a great price Why not ride a bike?If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park! Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one!
People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes! They are more popular now than ever before!
This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone! It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been regularly ridden in a while.(not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc. I try to be as honest as possible and never want to disappoint anyone. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us. Fed Ex just increased the rates. This is a 10+ day service and includes packing.
